Following my Muse has taken me on a circuitous path through different materials and mediums. I consider myself to be a painter although for decades I have been working in stone, wood, glass, and then back to paper and pigment.

I present a carnival of mythological narrative drawing deeply from superstitions, historical and contemporary mythology along with cultural folklore icons.

I often include allegorical imagery or elements of magical symbolism. My work features symbolic rather than realistic color, symbols instead of perceived reality, ideas rather than direct observation. In the end, my philosopher’s stone is made of pigment, paper, stone and bone, involving spiritual and folkloric elements and the search for meaning that extends through generations.
